I have a dictionary collection where I stored name and value.
For instance i have 500 records stored in that collection just like below-
Dictionary<string,int> dict=new Dictionary<string,int>();

I have a method name GetData(int PageNumber,Dictionary<string,int>() myDictionary)
it takes 2 aurguments.
First i will pass page number,and second i have collection.

I want to achieve, if i pass page number 1 then dictionary collection maintain only 1-100 key value pair.
If i passed 2 then dictionary collection maintain only 101-200 key value pair.
And keep going such fashion. means i want to create it dynamic approach
Any approach is greatly appreciated!

Below are my code which i have implemented, but it is static i want it dynamic-
public Dictionary<string, int> CreateCollection()
            dictionary.Add("A", 1);
            dictionary.Add("B", 2);
            dictionary.Add("C", 3);
            dictionary.Add("D", 4);
            dictionary.Add("E", 5);
            dictionary.Add("F", 6);
            dictionary.Add("G", 7);
            dictionary.Add("H", 8);
            dictionary.Add("I", 9);
            dictionary.Add("J", 10);

            return dictionary;

        public void getdata(int pageNo,object myDictionary)
            Dictionary<string, int> KeyValuePair = ((Dictionary<string, int>)myDictionary);
            if (pageNo == 1)// pageNo is the Datagrid Pager index in this case....
                foreach (KeyValuePair<string, int> kvp in KeyValuePair.Take(5))
                    Response.Write("Key " + kvp.Key);
                    Response.Write("Value "+kvp.Value);

        protected void GetData_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            getdata(1, this.CreateCollection());

Please change your code like below
 static void Main(string[] args)

            var getData = GetData(2, CreateCollection());
        public static Dictionary<string, int> CreateCollection()
            var dictionary = new Dictionary<string, int>
                                     {"A", 1},
                                     {"B", 2},
                                     {"C", 3},
                                     {"D", 4},
                                     {"E", 5},
                                     {"F", 6},
                                     {"G", 7},
                                     {"H", 8},
                                     {"I", 9},
                                     {"J", 10}

            return dictionary;
 public static List<KeyValuePair<string, int>> GetData(int pageNo, Dictionary<string, int> myDictionary)
            if (pageNo == 1)
               return CreateCollection().Where(x => x.Value >= 1 && x.Value <= 5).ToList();
            else if (pageNo == 2)
                return CreateCollection().Where(x => x.Value >= 6 && x.Value <= 10).ToList();
            return null;
